Coventry City boss Chris Coleman has confirmed his interest in Clinton Morrison and still hopes to sign Freddy Eastwood.
Morrison is a target for Coventry and Championship rivals Queens Park Rangers after turning down a new contract at Crystal Palace.
The striker is available on a free transfer after Palace manager Neil Warnock withdrew the offer and Coleman believes Morrison could do a job at the Ricoh Arena.
"He's very capable at this level to score goals," Coleman told Sky Sports News.
"If I said we weren't interested I'd be telling you a lie because there maybe a conversation there, but there'll be others in for Clinton."
Very good player
Wolves forward Eastwood is also a target for the Sky Blues, who have spent several months trying to sign the Wales international.
The deal appeared to collapse due to an issue with Eastwood's contract at Molineux, but Coleman is yet to give up on the transfer.
He added: "Freddy is another player and that's no secret. I think he's a very good player, he's a Welsh international.
"We've come very close to signing Freddy, but it's not quite happened. I'm not saying it's not going to happen, it may still, but it's gone on for a long time now with Freddy."
